Thanks for the IETC screen mklein. Excellent work as always. I'm always amazed by your statement that you've begin seriously investing for only 2 years. That's a lot of knowledge, and skills for someone with 2 years of experience. Your screen is a favourite bookmark of mine, thanks mklein.

Looked at the list and one of them caught my attention - TLK. Forgive me if I sound skeptical, but I was involved in a forensic audit of their failed joint venture with US West. I've dealt first hand with their management (incompetent & bureaucratic are very kind words to describe them), and staff (who mainly read newspapers during business hours). Inefficiency is an understatement. That was of course back in 2001, but I seriously doubt that things have changed much since then. The company may be touted as having a lot of growth potential, but does anyone care that TLK is highly wasteful as company, and growth comes solely from a de facto monopoly?
